"This is not your country"; even if you are the "Jeopardy" champion.

I can relate to Arthur Chu's experience as it relates to his father.




My father was also working on his post graduate degrees in America in the late sixties, and he too would tell us stories about some of the awful things that he experienced while trying to navigate the racial climate at the time.




Unlike Mr. Chu's dad, though, after he got his degrees my father went back to his beloved Jamaica and never left. As he liked to say when citizens of a certain class were fleeing the island and taking their wealth with them; "I will turn the lights out."


But I digress.




Chu wrote an excellent article for The Daily Beast that is cut and paste worthy, and I would like to share it with you.




 "I wrote the piece below in a late-night frenzy on July 13, 2013, after receiving a notification on my phone that George Zimmerman had been acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin. I had left a party early, brooding about why I felt so strongly about something that, ostensibly, had “nothing to do with me.”
I had originally kept this as a friends-only post on Facebook, because of the justifiable fear that writing angry tearful screeds about how mad you are at America might be harmful for my career.


As it was, the tweets that I sent out about how depressed I was after the Trayvon Martin shooting got dug up several months later by some National Enquirer intern looking for dirt on the recent Jeopardy! celebrity, and I got to see a blurb in the Enquirer asking, “Does Jeopardy champ Arthur Chu hate America?”


So for a while I was paranoid about ever letting anyone see this again. But then another late-night frenzy piece I wrote in response to the Isla Vista shootings took off, and I thought maybe sharing this wouldn’t be so bad an idea.
The one sticking point was, of course, that my D-list viral celebrity as a Jeopardy! champ and all that followed came a year after George Zimmerman’s acquittal and the whole issue of white guys shooting minorities dead and getting away with it was, as we say in the journalism business, “stale.”




But I remember a dark, cynical voice in my mind thinking, “Don’t worry. The issue may be stale now, but just give it a few months and it’ll be in the headlines again. Have faith. This is America.”


What do you know, I was right.
***
When my father first came to this country as a graduate student, there was an incident where he and a friend were walking home and were suddenly confronted in a parking lot by a group of apparently intoxicated students in a car, driving around them in circles, shouting threats and racist catcalls.


My father’s friend counseled him to ignore it, to wait for them to get their jollies and leave, that this is just the kind of thing that happens once in a while.
My father waited, and they didn’t leave, and then my father picked up a rock and said, “I’m counting to thirty and if they’re not gone by then this rock is going through their windshield.”


Luckily, they tired of the sport and peeled off around when my dad hit fifteen. It’s good for me that they did—had the rock gone through the windshield, had glass flown in a thousand bright shards across the asphalt, had the driver slumped over, bleeding, and the car doors swung open and his friends stormed out filled with anger, had police been called and charges been filed—well, I probably wouldn’t be here.


If by chance one of those students had been a Zimmerman, carrying a firearm for “self-defense” against “violent criminals” armed with rocks, I very definitely would not be here.


There was a moral to this story when my father told it to me, a moral that I hated more than any of the other morals that came attached to his other anecdotes.


It was a moral that explained many things. It explained, for instance, why he never went to parent-teacher association events, never integrated himself into “the community.” Why he consistently obeyed Rule #1, a rule that my friends’ white suburban parents had never considered—a rule I would not hear from others until I actually met people who’d grown up urban and poor when I got older—Never Talk to the Cops. (In the Bill of Rights it’s actually Rule #5.)
Why he urged me to choose a career specialization based on objective assessment of skills and achievements, one where success was quantifiable, one whose practitioners were organizationally indispensable. To take an “Asian” job like engineer, scientist, programmer. One where there was little room for subjectivity, where the personal impression of the interviewer counted less. To stay away most of all from fields where I would be judged purely based on how well people could relate to me, like direct sales, like middle management, like the performing arts.


To never, ever, ever put my livelihood in a position where I depended on white people liking me.


Because it was a lesson he learned the night that some random drunkards decided that terrorizing two pedestrians in a car, swerving toward them again and again, would be fun—would have no legal consequences because the cops wouldn’t care, would have no moral consequences because the victims didn’t matter.


A lesson he learned every time he was pulled over for a speeding ticket, or pulled aside by the store detective and asked to turn out his pockets, or quietly scoffed at and eyerolled at by a customer service rep for his accent.
That lesson was:


This Is Not Your Country.


You can live here. You can make friends. You can try to live by the law and be a decent citizen and even maybe make a lot of money.


But you will never, ever belong. You will never, ever be one of them. And you must never, ever trust them.


I resisted this lesson. I fought back. I worked for hours to give myself a generic Midwestern broadcaster’s accent—I became a voiceover artist because the way I have trained myself to speak is a “radio voice.” I fell in love with the English language, I developed a vocabulary of nearly a hundred thousand English words, I devoured American culture both high and low, Mark Twain and Eugene O'Neill and Flannery O'Connor and Jerry Seinfeld and Tupac and Public Enemy and the Beach Boys and Buddy Holly and Madonna and Ella Fitzgerald and Weird Al and Bill Hicks and George Carlin and Martin Scorsese and John Waters and John Philip Sousa and Aaron Copland and George Lucas and Beverly Cleary and Matt Groening and on and on and on, all of it, everything I could find, every TV show, every radio station, every book in the library.


History, literature, politics. Fast food and junk food and pop culture trivia and song lyrics and idiomatic colloquialisms of the South, the Northeast, the Midwest. I binged on America, I stuffed myself so full of America I was bursting at the seams with America.


I swallowed it all. As much as I could. I swallowed things that tasted foul and struggled to keep them down, but I did the best I could, to prove I could, to prove that I could swallow anything. I stomached the Chinese Exclusion Acts and the Riots of 1871. The gold miners and the borax miners and the railroad workers. I held my nose and I ate Jack London and the Yellow Peril and the coming war with China. I swallowed H.S. Tsien's deportation and Cold War paranoia and Joe McCarthy and the Yellow Peril and the coming war with China.


I choked down Wen Ho Lee’s arrest and Vincent Chin’s murder and Iris Chang’s suicide and Andrew Breitbart and the Yellow Peril and the coming war with China.


My friends were white. The girls I dated were white. I laughed at the racist jokes and invoked hipster irony to make them myself. I steeled my muscles and kept inside all the shit I’d swallowed, told me it was another time, another place, just another one of my dad’s stupid stories. I took history instead of CS or EE in college. To hell with my dad’s misgivings, I set out to be an actor, a performer, to live or die by whether I could get the audience to like me.


Because none of that was real. That was all in another world.


The historical atrocities and the daily microaggressions. Kids who screamed “Chinese Pig!” and adults who asked in an exasperated tone “I mean where are you from originally?” John McCain and the gooks he could never forgive. Making it to callbacks three times in a row only to never be the “fit” they were looking for. Being complimented on my English. Being criticized on my English. The tingle of nerves bristling at standing next in line to a FOB with a thick accent and a bad haircut, the desire to scream “I’m not with him! We’re not related!”




Sum Ting Wong and Ho Lee Fuk. Dick jokes. Accent jokes. Chinese restaurant jokes. The mute Chinese nerd in the background of the movie. The Chinese lead character being played by a white guy in makeup.


Waking up every day knowing that all of it—the broadcaster accent, the memorized cultural references and song lyrics—isn’t fooling anybody. Your face gives you away. The way you overenunciate certain consonants. The foods that don’t make you retch and the foods that do. The sound of your parents’ voice on the phone.


The way it simply matters more when a pretty white girl goes missing than when an Asian man goes missing and is later found dead. The way academics still publish papers on whether you possess the necessary mental apparatus to function in a civil democracy.


The way a grad student is willing to hurl a rock through a car windshield—and throw away his entire future with it—because he knows in that moment that he has no other options, that if he is found run over and dead the next morning the cops won’t really care.


The way a terrified black teenager might lunge at a racist vigilante because he knows there’s no good way out of this and it’s better to die fighting than to be shot in the back.


The way a crowd of people who have had their total and utter helplessness before the law rubbed into their face by the media over and over again might pick up rocks, sticks, knives and break anything they can, because while mindless vengeance is not justice—is far inferior to justice—it is still more than nothing, which, when they try to stand up and peacefully demand justice, is what they always receive.


The way a grim-faced storeowner might pick up an assault rifle and begin firing into that selfsame aggrieved, desperate crowd because he knows no one is coming, no one will help, no justice will be served—the men whose blood the crowd wants are safely ensconced in police protection in the suburbs miles away and they, like the Jewish bailiffs in feudal Russia in the time of the pogroms, will be left to soak up the rage of the masses. They fire round after round in “self-defense” without thought of justice because for them justice does not exist.


They live in a world different from your world, gentle white reader. The one you take for granted, where you can pick up the phone and someone on the other end will listen, a cop or a lawyer or a congressman. They live in Trayvon Martin’s world, in my father’s world, in the world that under all the assimilation and the “model minority” bullshit I live in, despite all my best efforts, despite all my father’s warnings.


But even that is a facile evasion, isn’t it? Calling it two worlds. It’s really only one world, only one country, only one United States of America. There’s one place, one culture, one system.


We all live here. We all make friends here, eat the food, watch the movies, maybe even make money.


It’s just some people belong here, and others don’t.


I can pretend to belong here better than Trayvon was ever given the chance to. The white racist looks at me and sees a stolen job or the slow decline of national prominence, but he doesn’t see a rapist, a thug, a barbarian at the gate. I fear being snubbed and sometimes spat on but rarely shot. And that is a very important difference.


But it is still not my country. However hard I try, however well they treat me, however much we all smile at each other and however much people praise the "model minority" I am, I know it is not.


Because it’s also the country whose government had to be pressured into taking an interest in the murder of a young man simply because of the color of his skin. A country that produced a jury that let that murderer walk free. And a country whose most self-proclaimedly patriotic citizens were whooping and hooting and setting off fireworks the night that man went free, right in the midst of the shock and grief and sorrow of those still mourning.


And I am done making excuses for this country, to say that “America” isn’t like that despite what the American government is like, despite what American history is like, despite what even now an overwhelming number of the American people are openly and proudly like. I am dead tired of pretending that countless examples are all exceptions, that to see a pattern where a pattern clearly exists is to be a “reverse racist” and “paranoid” and all the things I have accused my father of being.


I am sick and tired of reassuring myself that if their smiling faces can rejoice at the murderer’s freedom simply because the victim didn’t belong here, that I have any hope of belonging here either.


I am not an American. This is not my country. I have no country other than a China I barely know and do not love. Trayvon had no country other than the vanished West African kingdoms of centuries ago, replaced by post-colonial polities that know nothing of and care nothing for their long-lost sons and daughters of the Middle Passage.


It is not a good feeling, to be homeless. I wish it were not so. I continue to live here, work here, pay the taxes and obey the law. I even intend to spend my life here fighting to the end of my days in whatever small way I can to make this benighted country less of a failure at living up to its ideals. I like the food, I love the music, and in some broken, painful, tragic way I even love America itself, the way a victim of abuse might be unwilling to surrender his love for his abuser because to do so would be to surrender the last of his illusion of dignity and agency.


But of this, no more illusions. I am sorry, father. You were right.
This is not my country.

Wow! FN... Great post. Compelling! If he, an Asian American "gets it", certainly, we, as Black Americans should have "got it" decades ago. There is absolutely no sanctuary for Black and people of color in this America. The quicker we understand this reality, the quicker we can creatively adopt strategies necessary for our continued survival. There is a war being waged against Black males; it is undeniably "open season" on Black males and other peoples of color - and class. We are living in the Petri dish of emergent FASCISM... REFUSE TO BE SILENT!

He can take his yellow ass over to China on the next flight.

But guess what? He won't. People from all over the world do whatever they can to get here and start being "oppressed". It's better to live in the white man's country and whine like a little bitch than to go live with your own people.

America's an amazing country. Where else can you knock back a few Miller High Lifes while sitting at your computer and bang out a drunken screed "debunking" some of the most painful truths about living in this country because a "model minority" refuses to behave like one?

Seriously, some uppity chink decides to talk shit about you and your country and it's time to go to the mattresses on that shit. So you tell that yellow commie bastard he can take his ass back to Yellowland if he don't like it in the LAND OF THE RED, WHITE AND MOTHERFUCKING BLUE BABY!!!

Woe is the poor rich minority.

Minority victims can become so disillusioned. They loathe a country that helped make their success possible.

Maybe Arthur Chu can join Ho Lee Fuk in a cabin in the woods.

Leave this racist society behind.

But he won't do that. Chu enjoys making and spending the little pieces of green paper with white racist presidents on it.

Yep. Minorities are tired of making excuses for this country.

Tired of no one being on the other end of the phone.


You know when minorities will make excuses?

White Cop Wins $620,000 in Racial Discrimination Lawsuit

A federal jury awarded $620,000 to a white St. Louis police officer who sued alleging discrimination by superiors who gave an open leadership post to a less qualified black officer.

Sgt. David Bonenberger thought he had a chance at his dream job when he learned the St. Louis Police Academy needed a new assistant director. But the top cop at the Police Academy, Lt. Michael Muxo, advised Bonenberger that a higher ranking officer, Lt. Col. Reggie Harris, ordered him to “bring color down to the academy.” Muxo told Bonenberger not to bother applying, because the position was going to a black woman.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

0ne of the main reasons that I stayed in the Marine Corps for as long as I did was the attraction of achievement in its (sometimes brutally) quantifiable meritocracy. It was the only American institution I've ever encountered where black men routinely supervise large numbers of white men. In fact, the reason that I ended up leaving in mid-carear was my unwillingness to go through part of it's objective weeding-out process: 3 years on recruiting duty. Its no coincidence that minority composition of the enlisted Corps still increases dramatically by rank. Where else in America could they expect anything near as fair a chance?

Kinky, "Minority victims can become so disillusioned. They loathe a country that helped make their success possible."

Kinky, you can ruin a wet dream. You are such a negative ass toward minorities.

Furthermore, you got your thinking ass backwards. This country did not make them successful, 'they' made this country successful. But have they received credit? No, because racist white asses like you are too prejudiced to give credit where credit is due.

The biggest human mistake made was England letting your dumb ass ancestors come to the New World. They should have lynched all of you violent moronic barbarians. If they had, the average IQ of the human race would be 5 points higher. Now, we have to deal with stupid evil dicks like you.

You are dumber than the Chief of Police of Ferguson. Hell, if I was White, I'd be ashamed to be White. Of course, you aren't. You are proud to be White. Why? Because you are a violent evil dumb ass.

Field's special talent is finding perceived victimization, exploiting it and then blaming YT. It helps the paranoia and inferiority complex.
Since interracial marriage among Asians, Latinos and Whites is very high ( and successful ) to boot, it doesn't seem very likely that they "have any problems making this their country." What field has found is a disaffected Chinamen who can't get laid who has discovered the Black excuse of blaming YT. Same song different verse.

Good post. Browns and blacks definitely don't belong in the US. Or Canada, or Britain, or France, or Germany, or Sweden ..... or any place in the civilized Western world.

They don't belong. They can't assimilate, they can't cope, they can't contribute anything meaningful to the society.

All they do is create liability, destroying the quality of life for everyone else.

White people are aware that there is no place for brown or black people (especially mooslims) in their worlds.
Movies telling the historical story of the 300, repulsing the mooslims at the Gates of Vienna, are widely successful because it taps into a deeply held but not often voiced recognition that these aliens must be repulsed, the question is how and when.

The sooner the chocolate clan realizes this and self-deport, the better it will be for everyone.

Well, maybe at one time the USMC was a meritocracy, but no longer.

My DH and others of his generation left even though the USMC took all kinds of maneuvers to keep them because of their critical skills.

A typical "success" story is the overweight slovenly sheboon who was given a slot at a school that requires an entrance exam (which was waived for the sheboon) and shock! she struggled through the school, failing consistently. It also didn't help that she went UA consistently, flying off the Vegas on the weekends without permission, instead of going to study halls with her peers as was command mandated.

Then it was racism, racism, racism. Multiple expensive investigations, all which determined NO racism was existing. The investigating teams were all black. There was "pressure" on the command to forge paperwork for her, which they refused.

In the end, they got rid of her resentful, lazy, shiftless ass because she refused to provide a height and weight or run a PFT.

But the fact that she got as far as she did is a testiment to the very racist (as in pro-black) forces. This is why the military is destroyed. It will take decades to rebuild it.

Eff negros and their whining and BS. Admit you can't compete on the same playing field, so we can end this pathetic song and dance.

Truthfully, wasn't arthur's father lucky he was chinese?


Imagine the story arthur would tell about his dad if he was japanese.


Arthur would talk about fdr and the democrats rounding up all the people that didn't look like fdr and his family and put them in japanese internment camps.

Arthur would talk about the inhumane treatment that fdr forced innocent people into.

Remember, none of these people were even charged with stealing cigs from the local store.

Their crime?

They didn't look like fdr and his family.

Sulu (George Takei) talks about it.

Maybe FN will post Sulu's story about growing up in the camp that fdr forced americans into.

Or maybe that fdr/democrat thing is the wrong optic for FN.

A witness can be heard in the background of this video, taken minutes after the Michael Brown shooting:

#1 How’d he get from there to there?
#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck
{crosstalk}
#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him
{crosstalk}
#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus - the police had his gun drawn already on him –
#1. Oh, the police got his gun
#2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him
{crosstalk}
#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing
#1 The Police?
#2 The Police shot him
#1 Police?
#2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”)


You would think the media would have learned by now to take these stories a little slower.

From the previous thread, Yisheng said,

"That said, I decided a couple days ago to no longer resspond to ANYONE whose purpose here isn't in line with the goals of this blog. Plus, I'm on vacay until late August and have been for a couple days now. So, I've just got MUCH better things to do!"

Well, we can all see that she lied. Yisheng ALWAYS lie.

The 'real' truth is, Yisheng has nothing better to do but live on FN. Not only that, she can't afford a vacation...another lie she has told.

Yisheng is a born compulsive liar who doesn't know what the truth is.

Compare and contrast...

Arthur talks about his dad and a bunch of drunk idiots in a car.

Sulu talks about -

George spent most of his childhood at Camp Rohwer in the swamps of Arkansas and at wind-swept Camp Tule Lake in northern California.


A few words from drunks or "most of his childhood" in barbed wire enclosed government camps?


It's obvious why FN picked Arthur to quote.
It's a better fit for his agenda.



It's okay to speak of racial injustices when the perpetrator is a democrat.

I'm under the impression that throughout the history of the planet, all, only a sitting democrat american president has ordered atomic weapons to be used.

Is that correct?


Shouldn't the world be more scared of america with a democrat in the white house?


That is if you believe learning from history and past behavior has anything to do with future behavior.

Bulger, you are right. That is why I have been trying to get YISHENG to go on vacation and STAY ON VACATION. But the ignorant ingrate won't do what SHE SAID SHE WOULD DO.

She is the classic TNB. Can't trust them, can't believe them.

Now it's coming to light that the dead victim DID IN FACT TRY TO FIGHT THE OFFICER, AND TAKE HIS GUN.

Thank you, Live From St Louis for the link to what happened. I am so sick and tired of my peeps in St Louis blaming Whites for shit they created in the first place. In addition, Negroes are looting and destroying black businesses in Ferguson.

It's a damn shame but we are a very sick dysfunctional race. Totally incapable of doing the right thing...and Yisheng is without a doubt, one of them on FN.

Bugle, in her defense, she is NOT receiving assistance for med school. She is too stupid to go to college. So you wrong about that.

I am sure you KNOW how this disgusting mess in Ferguson should happen, which is NO Black officials involved because it is "disgusting".

Do you think it appropriate for an officer in the Missouri State Police to play the race card?

Do you have some inside information that would make conviction of the police officer before a trial the correct thing?

And Al Sharpton (and you call me a racist?) was collecting money...I am sure that a few of those dollars ended up in his pockets.

P.S. I prefer "feces." (Look it up in the dictionary.)

Ya think so. What I really think is that just about everybody is getting a real good dose of Negro fatigue. When this officer is cleared, it's going to be another Duke rape case or Tawana Brawley incident.
Meanwhile in the weekend Chicago shit show, there's been a quadruple shooting. ( That's 4 people shot at one time for you Blacks) Yet not a peep from the media. Money says YT is not involved.

Whatever Al Sharpton may be, takes nothing away from you being a racist to the core piece of shit.

Really? I really don't give a shit what you think. It doesn't count.

And as far as fatigue is concerned, why not leave FN? That would help relieve your racist to core ass of fatigue.

For Blacks, we have had a good dose of fatigue from QLB-racist-types for decades. So go fuck yourself, you racist piece of shit.

Roof Koreans for hire (Ferguson)

Roof Koreans for hire. Much success during L.A. Riots, no looters at our stores. Added bonus: can't be accused of racism, especially if violent mobs are fired upon. Will provide own ammo, but will charge extra for any rounds spent.

http://stlouis.craigslist.org/sks/4614862334.html


Sad to see what is going on in Ferguson.

We Koreans are nice people. We move into black neighborhoods when whites wouldn't be caught dead in them.

We Koreans provide low cost food, credit and jobs to blacks in a time when whites wouldn't piss on a negro if he was on fire.

How do blacks repay us? They loot our stores. They destroy our property. They rape our women.

No more sweet and sour pork for you negro..Chu may be a man without a country. I'm a man with a business.

With the help of my fellow Korean brethren, we will save our businesses.

Protect our women.

And raise prices next month.

Rational thinking? What the fuck does a racist like you know about rational thinking you racist piece of shit? You have been carrying a deep-seated prejudice against Blacks since you were born and you have the temerity to talk about 'rational thinking?"

Now that is truly "priceless". A sick racist piece of shit trying to be rational and doesn't even see his own irrationality. Yep, that's priceless.

One thing you have right you racist piece of shit: The cop will walk free. Blacks and Whites in America have seen that rerun over and over again. That's nothing new.

Regardless of how many bm police kill, you will remain forever a disgusting racist to the core piece of shit who fatigues himself over Negroes on FN.

Now anybody can see that you are an emotionally disturbed person 'incapable' of 'rational thinking.' No rational white person with Negro fatigue would be here. But, you are 'here' simply because you are NOT rational. And, you are dumb, too.

Well for someone so dumb I'm deep inside your OODA loop. That's why I piss you off and frankly I enjoy that. But there is one thing you do demonstrate and that's another characteristic of Black America. That's lack of impulse control. Amazing how the stereotypes stay true to form.

Yingyang is quite an individual. She is, depending upon the day, a doctor, an aspiring doctor, a scientist, a PhD, a mentor in STEM studies, a business owner and above all a tutor to medical students which pays $100 per hour. I find the latter interesting since no such job exists, but Yingyang is nothing if not another magical Negro.

Sad. So many important things said, but then he's got to paint the aggressive, violent thug Trayvon as some sort of role model, and ignore the fact that Trayvon attacked *another minority*, not some redneck cracker.

Every thug in the country should have fear in their hearts when they're about to smack down some innocent stranger - they should be trained to *expect* to be shot by people who may not be able to defend themselves in melee combat, but can defend themselves with a gun. Trayvon should be a lesson to all thugs out there who think they can simply walk by a stranger and play the "knock-out" game. Trayvon should be a *bad* example for the world, not a good one.

The sad fact of the matter is this - Trayvon and his thug buddies are the racists, and nobody is willing to call them on it.
